Setting Your Path Forward

Enhancing a community or facility takes forethought. The master planning process facilitates communication, documentation, and implementation strategies to foster productive change.

Our dedicated master planning experts have completed plans for urban and rural communities involving riverfronts, streetscapes, college campuses, and corporations.

Engaging the Community

Capturing a municipality or organization’s identity begins with the sharing of information and overall communication. On every master planning project, Klingner’s goal is to engage as many stakeholders, community members, and end-users as possible from the project’s onset and during key decision-making milestones. Our job is to create a framework where we can solicit feedback throughout the project so that the final documentation is a reflection of those we are serving. Our team of experts also attends public meetings to explain the decision making process, answer questions, and consider additional ideas.

“Conversations are the best resources.

Today we are often looking at data and metrics to inform decision making, but nothing can compare to one-on-one engagement with the public and project stakeholders.”

Proper Positioning for Available Funding

When new funding becomes available, a project with a master plan is in a better place to receive investments. Master Planning can take months. Having yours completed puts you months ahead of other municipalities or organizations when it comes to financing. At Klingner, we encourage clients to create master plans when there is a need so that they are ready when public or private resources become available.

Supporting Your Organizational Vision

A master plan should be a fluid document. Partnering with Klingner for your master plan results in a clear, concise document that can adjust with your organization’s changing needs. Our multidisciplinary group of planners, engineers, landscape architects, and architects develop a comprehensive plan – led by the community and stakeholders – that includes strategic delivery options with built-in flexibility to adapt over time.
